Unusually skilled director
2 January 2004 | by wherewemetSee all my reviews

This early effort by film director Joe Lamirand is a showcase for works yet to come.

Producing a comedy is a formidable effort and risky anytime ...but especially as an early effort in a director's career.

Lamirand pulls it off easily in this enjoyable film about the antics and side-effects of a young man who heads off to make it in acting.

The director was especially diligent in selection of cast, recruiting talented up-and-comers for key roles.

In summary it held my attention and made me laugh a lot ... just what a successful comedy is supposed to do.

Check it out if you get a chance.
